The 'fiscal cliff': Without congressional action soon, the U.S. economy might resemble Wile E. Coyote

The standoff in Washington on tax cuts and the budget sequester is a bit like a Road Runner cartoon: Road Runner racing toward a cliff, Wile E. Coyote hot on his heels, Road Runner coming to a screeching halt at the last moment and Wile E. Coyote plunging off the precipice.

Wile E. Coyote (also known simply as "The Coyote") and The Road Runner are a duo of cartoon characters from a series of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. The characters (a coyote and Greater Roadrunner) were created by animation director Chuck Jones in 1948 for Warner Bros., while the template for their adventures was the work of writer Michael Maltese. The characters star in a long-running series of theatrical cartoon shorts (the first 16 of which were written by Maltese) and occasional made-for-television cartoons.

In each episode, instead of animal senses and cunning, the Coyote uses absurd contraptions and elaborate plans to pursue his quarry.

The Coyote has separately appeared as an occasional antagonist of Bugs Bunny in five shorts: Operation: Rabbit, To Hare Is Human, Rabbit's Feat, Compressed Hare, and Hare-Breadth Hurry. While he is generally silent in the Coyote-Road Runner shorts, he speaks with a refined accent in these solo outings (except for Hare-Breadth Hurry), introducing himself as "Wile E. Coyote—super genius", voiced by Mel Blanc. The Road Runner vocalizes only with a signature sound, "Meep, Meep", and an occasional tongue noise. The "Meep, Meep" was recorded by Paul Julian.
